If it's an iPhone, zoom in, screen shot and then try. It reduces the meg to the photo!

Thanks for the tip scratchie. Now officially with pic! These were pests on the bait grounds although they look ok for bait? Fished up here for 20 years and have never seen them before?

"It looks like a Smallmouth Scad."

Hmm, its a long way south ! (but that does seem to be coming up a lot)

I'm not 100% but I'm thinking small mouth scad too, they have been reported as far down as botany but very rare. Take it to a fisheries office to confirm, I'm sure they would appreciate the information too.

My guess would also be a Small Mouth Scad (Alepes apercna) because if it isn't, stuffed if I know what else it would be.

Ryder must be correct.
